Raw Cacao Superfood Smoothie and Supergreens and Quinoa Soup for SUPER Meatless Monday!

Fast and healthy meals are at the top of my list when it’s time to eat! I made this easy and delicious soup the other day that took no time to make and is super nutritious! It’s kind of a cheat soup- meaning that aside from having to cook up some quinoa, everything else was pretty much done for me! A store bought organic vegetable broth and frozen cookin’ greens helped me get this soup on the table in no time!

Supergreens and Quinoa Soup

Ingredients:

1 container Organic low sodium vegetable broth

1 bag Cookin’ Greens Athelete’s Mix

Half cup dry quinoa (rinsed)

Season with – Herbamare, chili flakes, and pepper

Directions:

In a large pot, heat broth and bring quinoa to a boil. Turn heat to medium, add Cookin’ greens and simmer for 15 mins. Feel free to add whatever seasonings you like! I love it spicy, so I added chili flakes! Herbamare is a blend of sea salt and dried herbs; its great for flavoring many dishes.
